The Conservation Trust at Ruthin Castle is a new charitable trust set up specifically for the restoration, preservation and preventative maintenance of the Ruthin Castle Estate including the 13th Century castle, the 'castle mansion', auxiliary buildings and historical walls and grounds and for engagement with the local community and other interested parties, by way of access and educational involvement. The latter aim including co-operation with regional schools and higher education colleges to raise the skill-sets and knowledge within the local workforce.
In order to achieve its goals, The Conservation Trust aims to raise funding from all available sources and create sustainable commercial sources of revenue within the overall conservation project, to ensure that ongoing maintenance is provided for.
The current owners include the Saint Claire family who have held the property since 2004 and the Walshe family who in 2014 partnered them in the fight to conserve this important heritage property.
Since 2004 more than £4 million has been expended on the repair, development and refurbishment of the property. The partners established the charitable Ruthin Castle Conservation Trust in 2016.
